I bet you just love it!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Very nice idea - thanks for sharing
I made two of these the same way about five years ago and they are still going strong!! I love how light weight and portable these design walls are. So glad you finally have yours as well!!
Oh, and I had to cut mine down a bit too, so I took the foam bit that was leftover, covered it with some batting and made a mini design wall that holds a block or two to take to my sewing machine. This little thing comes in handy more than I would have thought!
Great design wall. I need a moving one.
I just did a search for pvc pipe portable design wall and found several sites with directions to build a 32 or 24 inch wall.
I thought I would do an update on how having a design wall has changed my sewing habits. For the last month or so I have used the right wall for a leader/ender UFO and have actually assembled 3 UFOs into flimsies in this way (almost magically!).
The left wall is used for my main project and has helped to bring 2 UFOs and one WIP to the flimsy stage.
As you can see, I've got 2 more UFOs that are being assembled this week. It is so motivating to me to fill up the wall! Sewing blocks and putting them in a pile is no where near as exciting as putting them up on the wall. I just love seeing the progress and how easy it is to flip the blocks whenever I see something instead of having to clear the floor, lay them out, rearrange for a few days and then worry about messing them up during assembly (which I seem to have a special talent for!).
So yes, I am LOVING these walls. I just had no idea how much they would change my productivity for the better. Plus they add so much color to my quilting room... I should have leaned them up against shelves, a closet or anywhere years ago!
